March 8 is International Women's Day. This day is designated to celebrate women empowering themselves starting in the United States in 1908. That year, 15,000 women took to the streets of New York City to march for higher pay, better working hours and the right to vote. In years past, International Women's Day has been celebrated less and less in the United States, but for the rest of the world, it's much different. Since 1910, countries around the world have celebrated this holiday dedicated to recognizing the struggles and strides that women have experienced throughout history.

Let's take a moment to recognize great women and their incredible accomplishments around the world. (Read More Here)
